Mixing is all about balance. Serving the song and bringing it to life is what I do best. I have a hybrid setup with some great outboard gear as well as a multitude of plugins. I'm very exited to start working new projects both on Mixing, Mastering and Producing from start to finish. I'm committed to work until I reach the best result possible!
Most of the time I follow every part of a production and I'm always inclined to give my suggestion on every part of the process. Even if I'm only supposed to Mix the song, I always give my feedback on everything that can improve the final result, even doing some overdubs.
It's important to me reaching the best result possible so the artist could be fully satisfied.

Despite his young age, Riccardo shows brilliant skills and expertise every time he gets to work. Me and my band decided to collaborate with him while producing our first record. His personal approach combined with his music knowledge allowed us to reach a very high quality ending result for our debut. Definitely recommended for both emerging and already experienced artists.
Destiny wanted Riccardo to mix our band's first album (A Fight For Attention - Identify). It was not easy to interpret our sound, especially because it is not conventional, but Riccardo was able to do it with wisdom and personality, combining tradition with modernity, respecting our needs and enriching our sound. Riccardo is a very helpful and professional person, humble and discreet, and at the same time, able and proactive. He certainly met our expectations, respecting our sound and giving it added value. Thank you Riccardo.
I had the pleasure to work with Ric on my first album as singer songwriter and he attuned to the genre and artistic process with great versatility and insight. I look forward to working again with him!
I've worked eith this multi talented artist producer multiple times and I'll continue to do so. He's added tons to my vocals with great input, professionalism and courtesy I highly suggest him to everyone
Hey we’re Votto and we play skramz. We worked along with Riccardo in recording and producing our album “Quindi noi sbagliando facemmo giusto”. Thanks to him it comes up a banger. Riccardo knows his way in recreating cool sounds as well as suggesting fresh ideas. Moreover, he’s a good company — what else could we ask for?
I'm a musician and singer who worked with Riccardo, and even if he comes from rock and metal that is not my area, he was also able to perfectly understand my necessities and help me to realize what i really wanted. Recommended
Interview with Riccardo Demarosi
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Right now I'm writing and recording an album for an artist. I'm also mixing several songs and recording on some other projects. That is kind of the routine in the studio where I work
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: They usually ask them how can I help with the process of making a song. I'm able to make a song from start to finish, so, as long as they have a clear vision of what they want to do, I can support them during the development of their music.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: There are many projects I'm proud of. One of them is the album Bosco from Zebra Fink that I had the pleasure to record/produce/mix.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: There's no real answer. One of my favorite engineers, Tchad Blake, can get a very warm and gritty sound using only digital processing. So I'd say that it depends on the need.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: We won't stop until my client is fully satisfied.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I like when I discover something new. That can also be a new perspective on things, and every artist has her/his own way of doing things. The best thing I can do is learn from them.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I can turn a bad song in a good song just mixing it. To have a good song you need to start with a good song!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Do you need someone who cares a lot of the final form of your song?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be sure to have a vision of the song right from the start. It's what is driving all the work behind the project.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My laptop, my monitoring system, and 3 coffees
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I spent some years as an intern at Mono Studio in Milan in 2014, then I started doing my own productions. I also do live concerts both as a player and as sound engineer.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: punchy and full
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: As long as the artist is committed to his work and she/he is trying to do her own thing and not copying others, I'm happy with anyone.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The song is more important that anything else, even more than the snare sound!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I'd say rock/metal, but I also do a lot of other genres. It really depends on what artist I get in touch with.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I spend a lot of time trying to improve my ability in production and mixing, not just in a technical way, but applying that knowledge to improve the final product empowering the artist's vision.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: All my knowledge and experience! I always speak my mind if the project/artist allows that. It's good to have an "external ear" on the song as a comparison point.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When I'm recording a song from the start, I'd like to fully understand the artist's vision to go straight to the target and especially to spend only the time necessary without losing the focus.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have an hybrid studio situation. I can go ITB and OTB. Everything is plugged-in so I'm always ready to record every kind of source I need for the project I'm working on.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: There are many professional musicians and producers that inspire me. The one that I like the most are the people that never stop learning their craft and never take anything for granted.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I own a recording studio in Piacenza, Italy. Usually, I start planning with the band/artist what the project is all about, what are the directions She/He want to take, including session musicians if needed and budgets. Then we record what we need and finish everything production wise. After that I take care of the mixing and mastering processes until the client is finally happy with the final result.
